Many clients wonder what catering entails.  We have  Event Coordinators who meets with the client to discuss all details prior to the event.  Needs vary greatly from location to location and many venues require rentals.  Our Coordinators manage the rental list, all details and timeframe specific to the event.
Most of the time, venues need to be ‘assembled’.  Whether it be a tented wedding at, Huntington River Vineyard, or a private dinner party; tables, chairs and tabletop decor need to managed.  Occasionally, clients want to tend to some of these details themselves which is always fine. From the custom designed menu to the set-up and break-down of the event,  every detail will be taken care of.


Our Argentinian grills offer much more than the traditional dinners one typically finds at a catered event. They allow us to prepare dishes for large or small gatherings, including;  Paella, Clam Bakes, Shrimp Boils, Pig Roasts, Porchetta on a Spit, Lamb Asado and beautiful vegetables on a cast iron Chapa – all cooked over local hardwoods with exceptional flavor.  Guests love watching the food they are about to enjoy, cooked right in front of them.  Many of them make their way over to ask questions…which we welcome.  



The Smoker is the newest member to our family.  She offers us the ability to smoke our own meat which, in turn, creates a fresher and more tasty product.  The smoker is mobile and frequently attends weddings when the menu requires it.  It is also great for family BBQ’s.
